Presenter Bio

Ian and Jo-Anne Cushon along with their son Liam operate Moose Creek Organic Farm at Oxbow, Saskatchewan. The farm is in southeast Saskatchewan in the thin black soil zone.   The primary crops grown are wheat, oats, flax, hemp, and alfalfa seed.

Ian started farming in 1981 and began converting to organic farming in 1985. Crop rotation and fertility management on many prairie organic farms is a big challenge.  Local supplies of animal manures are in relatively short supply and other sources of nutrients are expensive and sometimes of limited value.   

Protecting and improving the soil and managing fertility with crop rotations and off farm inputs on 5000  organic acres, requires continued learning, experimentation and lots of patience.
